Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny advocates for gun rights in Russia, while comparing immigrants and Muslims from Russia's southern regions to cockroaches and suggests they need to be exterminated.

Typical misrepresentation for propaganda purposes
In a standard practice by Russian government sponsored media the video of Navalny promoting gun rights is spun and misrepresented as racist to users who don't speak Russian and wouldn't know any better just from watching the video. As someone who in fact speaks Russian naively I can say that it's far from the case.
The video merely infers that when your accosted by bugs you need the right tools to defend yourself and likewise you need the right tools to defend yourself from terrorists.
It did not mention Muslims or compare them to insects. It simply presented a modern threat (terrorism) and stated that Russians need the right tools (guns) to deal with it.
